MB: I am ‘Selangor Official 1’ not ‘Malaysian Official 1’


SHAH ALAM, JUL 25: The spontaneous words of Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali had the audience laughing at the Freedom of Information Forum at Annex Hall of the Selangor State Assembly building today.

“Why are you looking at me, I’m not ‘Malaysian Official 1’ but I’m ‘Selangor Official 1’,” he said before continuing with his speech at the forum.

Mohamed Azmin said it after he touched on the US Department of Justice’s (DOJ) civil suit against the individual named as ‘Malaysian Official 1’ and other individuals close to the Prime Minister including Dato’ Seri Najib Razak’s stepson, Riza Aziz.


His remarks cause the entire forum, which featured several prominent local and foreign panellists, to erupt in laughter.

The phrase ‘Malaysian Official 1’ has become the talk of the town after the DOJ named ‘Malaysian Official 1’ as one of the defendants in the civil suit to forfeit assets worth billions of Ringgit linked to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad scandal.

Although the general population of the country believes that ‘Malaysian Official 1’ is Najib, Umno leaders are still denying it.
